Boston retailers

Hello everyone. I have been trolling around this site for a few months now but have not posted anything until now. First let me just say that pentaxforums is a great resource. Every time I go out and shoot I read up on other members' advice regarding similar locales. Unfortunately my k10d broke a few days ago and I'm in a bind. I cannot decide if I should fix it and keep it or fix it, sell it, and upgrade to a k20d. I was just wondering if anyone recommends any particular Pentax retailers in the Boston area. I am looking for a store that will be able to both fix my k10d and possibly sell me a k20d at a reasonable price. Thanks!

Only one that might be able to fix your K10D is Hunts in Melrose. Not sure what you mean by "broke" though. Some Ritz stores sell K20D's but only the basic kit and I think Hunts is cheaper.

Ah thanks. The exposure modes are off by a few slots. Green Mode is now Manual Exposure, P is now B, Sv is now X, Tv is gone, Av is Green, M is now B, and X is now M. TAv and B are fine. I have two Bulb Exposure and Manual Exposure modes.

With so many "bulbs" you shouldn't have any trouble seeing the light!
